FAKE 2020 CC1 Finishing in Style? Hampshire Away
It's not THE trophy picture but it is A picture of Tom Abell with cricket silver. As FAKE CC1 champions for 2020, we go to Southampton beyond the reach of Yorkshire but still liable to stumble against Hampshire. The county rest Byrom and Bartlett while Jack Leach is back from Enngland duty and replaces Roelof van der Merwe for the trip. The pitch is not expected to be particularly ready for spin.... but we shall see.
FAKE 2020 CC1 Yorkshire @ Taunton Fantasy beyond Reality?
In the parallel universe this could be one of the most important games in Somerset's long history as we go into this game with a significant chance of winning the Championship 2 games early!! If Yorkshire can't hold us then we may be unassailable at the top by the end of this match. Fantasy is cruel is it not? Still we have to get there first.
FAKE 2020 CC1 @Warwickshire Grin and Bear it?
In this alternative 2020 reality Tom Banton finally gets into a side because of England's demands on our spinners - and then he bats at 8!! Jack Brooks gives Jamie Overton a rest on a possibly sluggish pitch in Brum
FAKE2020 CC1The Big One? Yorkshire @ Headingley
After a bit of debate about the 2 spinners without Jack Leach and the merits of Davies and Banton as keeper we decide to go with the same side except that Craig Overton returns for Jack Brooks. The first versus second match with a possible trophy in it. Strong Yorkshire side with their England players on the field. Could be a very important result for one of the sides in Fantasyland.
FAKE 2020 CC1 Notts The Return
Just as the fantasy season starts to hot up, Jack Leach goes down for four weeeks and our main spin attack is diminished. We call us Roelof and return Jamie and Lewis while resting Craig. Will the selectors succeed in keeping the momentum going?
FAKE 2020 Hampshire at home - Homeboys game
As we continue the lockdown and even with news that a 2020 'season' may actually take place in the last couple of months, we keep this CC1 simulation going with the next in our 'series'. Hampshire come South West to try and move us down from second and move themselves up from 5th. Thsi game would have taken place at the end of June - here we are a month early....... enjoy
FAKE 2020 Essex @Chelmsford CC1 - Deja Vu?
Jamie O is back in the side along with Mik Carberry who is back after his hamstring injury. This WAS the game last year and Essex are there again one place below us but looking to move ahead. Yorkshire are leading but they are a game ahead and there's only 15 points in it. THIS is one of the games of the season FAKE or no FAKE
FAKE 2020 Kent the Return CC1
Jack Brooks is back as is Azhar Ali after his injury. Mike Carberry is still out but Alexei Kervezee keeps his place and we go to Canterbury with 2 spinners. Thie parallel universe stuff is interesting
FAKE 2020 CC1 On to the Oval Surrey (A)
The return fixture to the home of the Brownhats in this fantasy parallel universe we find ourselves in to replace the actual 2020 season in our sad little cricket deprived lives!! Josh Davey makes his first appearance in a 4 day game for the season as we move back to a twin spin (Dom Bess is also back) and less speedy attack to compete with the Oval flatness. Will it work? Good question. Let's find out shall we?
FAKE 2020 v Warwickshire @ TAUNTON Sunday 26 April 2020
Game 4 of the parallel universe CC1 of 2020 sees the present bottom club from Birmingham come to the County Ground for a bit of four day. Somerset have a few injury worries and have narrowly decided to welcome back Craig Overton and dispense with the twin spniin attack f the first 3 games after it was not as effecetive against Surrey last week. Good Move? We also welcome Alexei Kervezee to the whites of the South West.....
